Kim Kardashian: Taking so Many Selfies Is Ridiculous but Fun

Kim Kardashian‘s Hollywood app game made over $74 million last year and the app continues to grow and do well. The success of the game has landed the reality star on the cover of Adweek this week, which delves into how she got involved in the project and the secret to the game’s popularity. The magazine also talks about Kim’s high-profile social media presence (27.2 million Instagram  and 29.5 million Twitter followers), namely her selfies, which are the focus of a book she is releasing this year.

Say whatever you want about Kim Kardashian, but you can’t say she isn’t self-aware. The reality star has poked fun at her social media antics in a T-Mobile commercial, but she says she realizes how silly she looks when she’s constantly taking pictures. “For me, what’s so funny is I love taking pictures and posting them on social media for memories. I genuinely love the glam of life and hair and makeup and all of that, so I love just sharing my life with people—that’s who I’ve been,” she said. “I live my life on a reality show. But sometimes people take it very seriously, or they think it’s ridiculous. I’m kind of letting them know, yes, it is ridiculous, but it’s all fun.”

Well, as long as she’s having fun…

Anna Wintour’s Career Advice: Get Fired

Ever wonder how Anna Wintour got so successful? The editrix is doling out advice in a new book by Alastair Campbell called Winners: And How They Succeed and according to her, the key to success also includes what some of us may consider a major failure. Most of us would be absolutely horrified and depressed if we lost our job, but Wintour says it’s a necessary part of being successful. “I think everyone should get sacked at least once. It forces you to look at yourself,” she said. “It didn’t feel it at the time, but it was definitely a good thing for what it taught me. It is important to have setbacks, because that is the reality of life. Perfection doesn’t exist.”

If perfection doesn’t exist, then Wintour will have to answer for her impeccably-coiffed bob — a hair is never out of place. But in all seriousness, getting fired is a terrifying thing, but it does offer us a learning experience and an opportunity for growth. Still, that begs the question — what has Ms. Wintour done to get herself fired?

Peter Dundas, Zac Posen and the House of Carven the Latest Players in Designer Musical Chairs

There are some major changes going on in the fashion industry, which seems to play a game of designer musical chairs every few months. This particular go-round includes Peter Dundas, who is said to have shown his final collection for Emilio Pucci this weekend. The designer showed another set of spectacularly printed pieces before taking his bow at the helm of the house. Now, all eyes are on Dundas to see what he does next, with many speculating that the designer could be headed back to Roberto Cavalli, where he worked from 2002 to 2005. 

Zac Posen is another designer possibly playing a huge role in this round of shake-ups. According to Page Six, Posen has been tapped to lead the revived house of Charles James. Posen seems like an excellent choice — James was known for the grandeur of his gowns and if anyone has that spirit running through his veins, it’s Posen, whose ballooning skirts and figure-flattering silhouettes have made him a red carpet favorite for many celebrities. The resurrected label is a pet project of Harvey Weinstein, who has tapped his wife and Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman to serve as a creative consultant for the brand. Marchesa co-founder Keren Craig and CEO Edward Chapman have also signed on to serve in the position alongside Georgina.

Carven is going through a few changes of its own — the house has announced two artistic directors for its womenswear line, Adrien Caillaudaud and Alexis Martial. Their very first collection for the label will be shown on Thursday, so we will get a peek at how the pair, both alums of Givenchy, worked together this season.

Vogue Turkey Celebrates Fifth Anniversary with 5 Different Cover Girls (Forum Buzz)

Multi-covers are everywhere and Vogue Turkey continues the trend for its fifth anniversary. It’s almost hard to believe the publication’s premiere issue with Jessica Stam was half a decade ago. Jessica makes a welcome return for the mag’s March 2015 issue alongside peers Alessandra Ambrosio, Fei Fei Sun (below), Behati Prinsloo and Jourdan Dunn. Each cover girl was captured by Cuneyt Akeroglu in similar setups, delivering a set of coherent covers for the celebratory issue. It’s only natural one cover is going to outshine the rest, but which?

Leave it to our forum members to share the best and the worst. “Fei Fei is enough! She’s gorgeous,” gazebo raved.

“What a stunning group of covers. I love them all but Fei Fei’s is my favorite!” responded Nepenthes in agreement.

Sharing the same sentiments was thatsfierce: “Fei Fei and Alessandra’s are my favs! They both look so gorgeous. Can’t wait for more.”

Forum member nataliaapple agreed writing, “Absolutely love Fei Fei’s cover. Perfection. Love them all but Fei Fei is the star here.”

As did lightblue, who was quick to share, “By far the best cover Alessandra has ever done. I just love her here, she looks so young. Second pick would be Fei Fei.”

Has Vogue Turkey hit a home run? “Lovely! Best work I’ve seen from Vogue Turkey in a while. Love the Diversity!” hailed fashionlover2001.

“Hats off to Vogue Turkey for showing diversity on its covers. Some model choices I find weird, like Behati and Alessandra but I really like them, especially the styling,” kokobombon noted.

Rebecca added edge with black criss-cross pumps, tousled waves and dark eye makeup, but balanced out the harsh look with some white nail polish. It’s the sexiest styling of the dress we’ve seen yet.

Why Jennifer Hawkins Is so Much More than Just a Pretty Face

Contrary to what you might already think, Jennifer Hawkins isn’t just another model slashie who gets to decorate her bangin’ bod in Cozi bikinis and JBronze tanning products. The quintessential Aussie babe is proving she can go the distance beyond the gene lottery, cleverly capitalising on a pageant-queen moment over 10 years ago while still sticking to her roots.

Just ask the editor-in-chief of entrepreneurial magazine Renegade Collective, Lisa Messenger, who is an advocate of all-things Jennifer. She chose the 31-year-old model as cover girl for the glossy’s second anniversary issue this month because she believes that Jennifer is “a serious entrepreneur to watch.”

“If people still think of her as just a model, I would urge them to look much more deeply into the multi-faceted, multi-talented woman that is Jen,” Lisa explained to theFashionSpot. While modelling might be her calling card, Lisa wants people to see how Jennifer has successfully traversed the industry. “She has used her modelling career and associated celebrity as a springboard to start seriously successful businesses such as JBronze and Cozi Swimwear, and has an illustrious property empire,” she told us.
